一些短筆記

秋分之後兩週間,面南的房間氣溫反而更高,今天就看到用電創歷史新高的消息。可是不只氣溫,空污也讓自然通風顯得難行,就算放消息出來讓人節電,若無法改善外在環境,效果恐怕也有限。短期看來,似乎只會繼續往惡性循環裡去。

一直以來,認為我的鄉愁總在未來,而非過去。但今天突然意識到自己非常懷念2016年以前的世界。

Been logging health data to Calendar so that they're easily accessible and comparable to other factors like weather, air quality, etc. This QS Ledger can be a step forward but not sure how much more I might need from it than a Google Sheets.

餐廳內用不限社交距離與隔板,但戶外只有田裡山裡水裡不必戴口罩。我是不是看錯了什麼?

類似《魷魚遊戲》的戲劇幾乎已經是一種類型片了,為什麼到現在才突然獲得大量矚目實在不明白。但每一次看到這種「遊戲片」我都想到《聽風的歌》裡的老鼠:

「老鼠的小說有兩個優點。首先是沒有做愛場面,然後是沒有一個人死掉。」

Siri Shortcuts and widgets really changed how I interact with my iPhone. Most of the things I do with phone now start with a widget or a Shortcut trigger on the home screen.

Bought a pair of headphones from a local brand. The qualities were so bad that I had to send back for fixing 3 times in a single year. During the process I had to use email and phone to finally get headphones fixed. Now I get their spam mails and text messages all the time.

Worst email spam I get is from GettyImages. No unsubscribe button on their mails. Does not let me sign in from my password saved by Keychain. Retrieving password required 8 captcha tests and this time the mail failed to arrive.

I forget things. I just do. That's why I've grown to be organized and learn methods like GTD to help me get through life. Asking me to train my "memorizing power" is absurd because that would just cram more garbage into my brain and leave even less room for essentials.

Prompted sign-in should remain on whatever page the user is currently reading. This seems obvious but many big websites fail to do this and always redirect to their home page.

After 7 years, the soles on my running shoes finally fell off. Will try fixing them before getting a new pair.

Calendar on macOS refused to show an event I had just added, so I kept adding the same event until I decided to check my iPhone and found 6 of them cramped together inside today's 2pm cell.

Is there any iCloud-based service that just works without any syncing glitches?

從疫苗預約到五倍券發放,有意無意地都有飢餓行銷的成份在。用「起跑」影射這是一場競賽,再以「加碼」為說詞來規避競賽必然導致的不公平。疫苗和振興券的取得非得是一場競賽嗎?如果這非政府的本意,那實在該考慮一下是否要一直讓大家玩搶東西的遊戲。

Mid-autumn is tomorrow, can’t believe I might need to use the AC tonight. Not because of the heat, but the air quality is just unbearable. I blame the many cars out there trying to have some covid-relaxing fun.

打坐時最常襲來的情緒是恐懼,一波過了又一波,強忍著不逃避而直面它,過了不久腳就麻了,然後痛覺就取代了恐懼。

Walking is safe, but I find it quite inefficient and tedious if I walk only to workout. There are faster and also safe ways to work up the heart rate, and you can actually shorten the time spent exercising to avoid getting bored and eventually unmotivated.

Reaching 10,000 steps every day is easy to follow, but it might not actually reach basic physical activity requirement, which is 150 mins/week moderate-intensity PA. Intensities are calculated from heart rate, so if you're not walking fast enough, you're not active enough.
